Hello everyone!

I decided to go on asking if there's someone who wants vector avatars of a particular class or stock of rolling stock.

The only thing I ask is a photo of the train (the perspective has to be the same of the desired avatar) and some time. I'll be listing here the requests so that everyone can know who ask already and what.

Avatars are exported to PNG on these resolutions:
120x120
135x135
150x150
150x110

If is there a particular resolution needed, please point out right from the beginning.


Here are some examples:

LU S Stock:






CP 3400






LU C Stock






Requests are made on this thread.

Thank you for your attention! ;)



Requests:
Monty - SWT Class 455
trentside - EMT Class 156
VTPreston_Tez - Preston Bus FIAT Ducato (???)
VTPreston_Tez - Northern Class 150
JamesHorrell - ??? HST
JamesHorrell - ??? (Steam Engine)

I may just take you up on that offer Giugiaro, I'd love you to do one of my current avatar. A SWT class 455, I'll send you the original image when I get home.

Thanks :D

Seems like a great idea Giugiaro.

I also have a request for you, an East Midlands Trains class 156. Will dig out a suitable photo for you :)

Thanks!

Very nice. I was also wondering if you did bus vectors...? They're very similar to trains I suppose :P with this photo just with the 31 changed to 29 preferably. You don't have to of course, but it would be nice.

If that's not possible then please may I have a class 150 done please? Destination blind doesn't matter, as does stock number and all of the very minor details. Knock yourself out. :-P

Thanks, and hope I don't cause too much inconvenience with my ludicrously evil demand(s)? ;)

VTPreston_Tez, I'll be doing both the bus and the Class 150.
I just want to know if the bus is a modified FIAT Ducato and if the Class 150 is to be in Northern Railways livery.


JamesHorrell, I need to know which TOC you want the HST to be, and also the photo I have to vectorize.
Steam engines are something that I haven't tried, but I could give it a look. It may look like a simplified version of this in the end.

Giugiaro, These are brilliant, You have amazing talent! (Could I use the S stock one as a avatar on here with a credit in my signature of course ;) )


I have some bus requests if you have the time, Not sure if they are any good or the right perspective for you though.

The bus is called an Optare Metrorider. Just in case you wanted any more information on it.
I'd like the Northern 150 in Northern livery, perhaps a bit more attention-seeking (a nice deeper purple where applicable) and I think I'll use this in my signature.

When I come off moderation and I am allowed my avatar back I would like my previous avatar to be turned into a vector. Can I have the picture below turned into a vector please?



I also have it as an attachment. :)

Thanks :D

They look amazing, I have a few requests for the various forums I use, if i may be so greedy with your time? :)

This:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattburley0/8399370396/
For the OMSI forums. Could the destination display read 48 Clifton via The Meadows, if that's not too much bother (if it is then a blank display will be fine)

This:

But without the advertisement on the side. For another OMSI forum.

And This:

For here. I think it's about time I had a change of avatar I feel like I have had the same one for years (although it may only be 18 months or so :) )

Thanks mate and keep up the good work they look fantastic.

Everyone, I'll be taking some time to do these things, because it's Easter and back in Portugal I have to do some things in church that takes away all day, since this Thursday until late this Sunday. I expect to finish the first pack Monday, if everything goes as expected.

Anyway, don't be afraid to make requests. I just ask to tell me the company, the model and the livery, because not only I can find the corporate colours, logos and other alternative images, but also for making a more informative list (the one above).

I prefer to make blank displays and identification plates, because doing so would require to find a suitable font for each case, and most times it won't make any difference by being so tiny in the end. Logos, in the other hand, will be present.

wbbminerals, the EMT InterCity 125 HST as been asked by ATWalex101 already. To avoid any trouble, would you mind choose another stock?

TrainBoy98, I do ask the same for the Northern Class 150, which I'm currently doing for VTPreston_Tez. Could you make another request?

Thank you two for your attention. ;)

Ok, Ive thought of another one, could you do me a HST in Virgin Livery? (I don't have a picture right now, I don't suppose anyone has one Giugiaro could use?)

I'll just find one that is suitable for observation.

I decided to do your Northern Class 150, but without the gangways. VTPreston_Tez in the other hand has the version with gangways. Is that alright?

Wow - Giugiaro these are amazing!

I don't suppose, since you're doing buses, you'd be interested in looking at a tram?

If so, I'll join the queue!

:D

Here's an OK-ish photo.... of a Manchester Metrolink M5000 tram.

Only just found this thread, despite the various vector avatars which have been popping up - didn't realise these beauties were your work, Giugiaro :D

When you have a moment, I would enjoy a Class 365 with the 'Happy Train' cab in NSE 'toothpaste' or FCC 'Urban Lights' please. Take your time with it though; I'm perfectly happy with my current avatar!

There's so many pictures I've found, it's impossible to choose a specific example! I was wondering if you could try this picture of a 365 passing a 317; I like the perspective, though as a vector it might be better to flip the image and draw the units closer to one another. Otherwise, I can always choose a different base!

Your work so far has been great, and I can't wait to see more of your talent in action!

This last trip I made to the mountains didn't quite help with my health. Good thing I'm feeling better now. I'll restart working this Monday once I have my TS 2014 matters cleared.
